    you'll need.....

    hasport shift linkage or shortened 90-93 integra
    conversion wiring harness EFDX-VTEC hasport the DX model needs to be converted to si first
    hasport mounts/placeracing mounts
    axles from 90-93 integra or i used 94 del sol passenger side 86 integra driverside
    upper radiator hose 92 gsr trimmed
    lower radiator hose 90 integra trimmed or you can find some for the swap on ebay that are made for this swap
    if you have a/c you'll need a special braket. i have one for sell that i didn't use, it's from hasport
    also buying a crate motor it's always smart to replace spark plugs and wires, all the belts alternator timing. and the WATER PUMP. and it's also a good idea to replace the clutch sense the motor is out of the car, but you don't have to

    check out hasports website and place racingwww.hasport.com
    www.placeracing.com

    1st, If you haven't already ordered the engine, look into buying from hmotorsonline.com. Steve is a great guy and is considered one of the most reputable dealers in the United States.

    I would suggest getting hasport mounts. They DON"T break. Seriously. I've heard one story about them breaking, and many about the HCP/Placeracing/otherweldedcrap mounts.

    You can do the wiring yourself, its not really very hard...at all, or if you don't feel comfortable doing it, order a conversion harness. If the swap comes with teg or SiR axles, use those.

    Definatly replace the clutch. I found the one inside my b16 was completly bare when I pulled the tranny to install the new clutch.

    Becuase the DX is DPFI (dual point fuel injected) and the Si and SiR are MPFI (multi point fuel injected). All this means is you need to run wiring for 2 more injectors to get it to Si Spec. Then you need to run 4 wires + a ground for the VTEC conversion to SiR.

    I can attest to this.. Steve is a great guy.. Alot of us around here have ordered Motors from him.. If there is any problem with the Motor he is very quick to take care of it.. And all motors come in great shape..

    And I agree. Do a new Clutch. Its alot easier to do when the motor is out vs doing it later.

    i bought my motor through hmotorsonline as well. they test the compression and also offer a 100% money back garentee. although the garentee is only valid if you replace all the parts i listed above. its not that big a deal though because you need to replace thoughs things anyway. don't forget the water pump from a 94 del sol.
